Starting from emacs -Q:

1. Go to the beginning of the *scratch* buffer (M-<).
2. Search for "filee" (C-s filee) and type <enter> to accept the
current cursor position.
3. Repeat the last search (C-s C-s).

After step #3, the minibuffer shows the entire seach string "filee" as
unmatched, but the first 4 characters *do* have matching words after
the cursor position.  So only the last "e" should be displayed as

IOW, I should get the same result with (C-s C-s) as with (C-s filee)
(i.e. retyping the search string).

A picture is worth a thousand words. See attached screenshots:
* "img-wrong.png": Observed result.
* "img-right.png": Expected result.
